The Easter school holidays are one of my favourites, I think. I just love spring when everything begins to burst into life, all the trees start to grow leaves and the flowers start to bloom!
And then we get two weeks off school to enjoy it as well!
This is the list of all the things I love to do with the kids at Easter time, all my favourite Easter bucket list ideas with things to do in the Easter holidays, Easter craft activities for kids and more.
Easter Bucket List
- Set up an Easter Egg Hunt. For younger children you can hide eggs around the house or garden if the weather is OK. For older children you can write cryptic clues for them to puzzle out.
- Eat some Simnel Cake. This delicious fruitcake is decorated with marzipan - it's a bit like a Christmas cake without the icing.
- Do an Easter Wordsearch.
- Learn how to do egg decorating. You can use fibre tip pens or paint.
- Get out your pens and pencils and do some Easter colouring pictures of bunnies, eggs and baby chicks.
- Put together an Easter Basket of delicious foods, sweets or gifts.
- Read some rabbit themed books such as The Velveteen Rabbit, Watership Down or Alice in Wonderland.
- Have eggs for breakfast on Easter Day.

- Hang eggs on a tree. This is a tradition that is thought to have begun in Germany. You need to start by blowing the eggs to remove the white and yolk before you decorate them.
- Watch some rabbit themed movies.
- If you want to save your families teeth or have kids or friends with allergies give some chocolate-free Easter gifts.
- Make an Easter bonnet.

- Eat some Peeps. These marshmallow chicks are popular in the US and Canada.
- Make Easter biscuits.
- Visit a farm - Easter is the perfect time of year to see spring lambs and baby ducks! Here are the UK's top Farm Parks.
- The weather should start to warm up by Easter so why not get out and go for a walk in the great outdoors - visit your local park, woodland or countryside.
- Make some Edible Fluffy Sheep with this quick and easy recipe.
- Go fly a kite - it is an Easter Day tradition in Bermuda, and great fun anytime if there is a breeze.
- Visit your local National Trust property and join in with their annual Easter Egg Hunt. Follow the trail of nature-inspired activities, complete the trail and collect your Rainforest Alliance chocolate egg.
- If you are really lucky with the weather you might even be able to have a picnic.
- Feed the birds - birds appreciate being fed all year round, so get hold of some fat balls or bird food and fill up the bird feeder.
- Go to see an Easter Parade. Nothing on near you? Dress up in your best clothes, put on your Easter bonnet and go for a walk with friends.
- Catch a movie - here are the family films in the cinema right now.
- Go to the Panto - yes really, Easter pantomimes are a really big thing - you can find listings for Easter pantos running in 2023 on Big Panto Guide
- Have a go at Egg rolling. The tradition is that you and your friends roll a hard-boiled, decorated egg down a hill and see whose egg goes the furthest.
- Make your own chocolate eggs.
- Tell some terrible Easter jokes. These ones are really bad.
- Make and eat some tasty Hot Cross Buns with this classic recipe.
- Make your own free printable letter from the Easter Bunny with this template which allows you to personalise the letter for your child.
